A lower jurisdiction cannot make a law less restrictive. It can, however, make it more restrictive. Restrictive is a relative term, it really means that the lower jurisdiction must continue in the same direction as the higher authority. For example, regarding ADA, state and local laws cannot change the minimum turning circle in a bathroom from 5' to 4'. They can, however, increase it from 5' to say 7'. And, yes, their are situations where the rule has such a tight upper and lower bound that the lower jurisdiction cannot alter it, e.g., handrails are 42"ABL period, no changes. - Bill Cain wrote: >And, in the opinion of at least one BORPELS staffer, local jurisdictions can >not over ride state law. On a side note: I wonder how they are going to "grandfather" licenses?
